A Method for Analysing the Performance Aspects of the Fault-Tolerance Mechanisms in FDDI (1992)

Author(s): van Moorsel A, Haverkort BR, Niemegeers IG

    Abstract: The ability of error recovery mechanisms to make the Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) satisfy real-time performance constraints in the presence of errors is analyzed. A complicating factor in these analyses is the rarity of the error occurrences, which makes direct simulation unattractive. Therefore, a fast simulation technique, called injection simulation, which makes it possible to analyze the performance of FDDI, including its fault tolerance behavior, was developed. The implementation of injection simulation for polling models of FDDI is discussed, along with simulation results.
